Begoña B. Cosín & Rafael García

Cooperativa Olivo Vivo

Location: Córdoba & Aracena, Huelva
Products: Extra virgin olive oil & table olives

The farm is the property of my father, who retired in 2008 and left it abandoned. In 2010 my brother and I took over and started to run it on ecological lines, with a focus on selling directly to consumers and building a small farmers’ community to help make positive social change.

We want to live in the countryside, with dignity from our work in the fields. For these goals we work hard to produce an olive oil of the highest quality.

We believe in working together, creating networks between producers and consumers to help build a food system that produces healthy, delicious and high quality food – and at the same time helps change the world for the better.

“We don’t want agriculture without farmers, we don’t want a countryside without people. We stand for a very political agriculture, nothing more than bringing it into everyday life.”
